ENTRANCE HALL 10'2 x 6'9
Through a large, solid front door is the entrance hall - a welcoming space that exudes 1940s charm. With natural light coming through an original metal window in the stairwell, complete with a sea view, and plenty of space, the entrance hall feels lovely and bright. There is a useful under stairs cupboard ideal for coats, and there are doors off to the kitchen, lounge and downstairs bathroom. Telephone point. A radiator features a shelf over.

LOUNGE 18'1 x 13'9 reducing to 12'3 extending to 13'1
The generously proportioned lounge benefits from fabulous original 1940s metal French doors, which are south facing and lead into the lean-to conservatory, affording views of the large back garden beyond. A further picture window to the side aspect increases the amount of natural light, and double internal doors to the dining room create a versatile, semi open planned living space. A grand chimney breast is complete with an original rustic stone fireplace and hearth, currently home to a gas fire with a decorative mahogany mantle over. One alcove is the perfect spot for a desk, while the other currently has shelves fitted, and both alcoves benefit from wall lights. Two radiators come with shelves over, and thermostat control.

DINING ROOM 12' x 10'
Either with the doors to the lounge open as a large reception area, or with the doors closed as a more formal dining room, the space is extremely flexible. There is plenty of room for a dining table and chairs, and the dining room also benefits from a pair of original south facing French doors to the conservatory, which, when combined with a further picture window to the side aspect, creates a fantastic light ambience. There is a large radiator and there is also a door to the kitchen.

A timber constructed lean-to conservatory which is south facing and sits on solid brick dwarf walls. With a UPVC roof and tiled floor, the conservatory is a fantastic addition to the home, and features two doors, one to the side aspect and one directly into the back garden.

A solid hardwood kitchen, hand crafted bespoke to the room in the 1980s features large base units, fitted shelving over and high-level wall units above, all finished in natural dark timber. Worktops are finished in a country tile, which compliments both the timber units and tiled splash backs. Integrated into the worktop is a 1.5 bowl stainless sink and drainer, with a modern swan neck mixer tap and task light over, perfectly positioned to make the most of the sea views. There is space for an oven and fridge/freezer and plumbing for a washing machine. The floor is tiled in a neutral shade, and the kitchen also features an extractor unit in the window and a radiator.

To the front, an original stone wall retains an immaculately presented lawn, with mature borders to both sides. A concrete drive leads up to the garage and house, and is bordered by further stone walling. A broad patio spans the front of the house, providing access to both side paths, and providing additional parking space. To one side, a paved path leads to a water butt and provides a perfect space for bin storage. To the other side is a garage and side path leading to the back garden. The brick built garage has a timber up-and-over door, and a window to the side aspect, and also benefits from it's own lighting, an outside tap, and sliding door access to the back porch. The garage is also home to the gas and electric meters. To the rear of the garage and back door is a sunny, block paved patio.

Between a trellis border is a large lawned area, bisected by a concrete path and complete with mature fruit trees and shrubs. A substantial greenhouse sits on a solid base, and there is high quality fencing to one side and a mature hedge to the other. To the rear of the garden is a block built composting area. Mature trees form the border at the end of the garden, beyond which are the playing fields of Ryde School. An absolute gardener's delight
